Bruxism (unconscious teeth grinding), either during sleep or waking hours can have a significant negative effects on your dental and oral health. Fortunately, however, our dentists at PDG can help protect your teeth while you sleep through the use of mouthguards. Mouthguards/Dental splints are specifically designed to absorb the force as you bite down and grind your teeth.
Even though over the counter mouthguards are available, they do not fit your mouth properly and so do not allow you to get a good night’s sleep.They are also usually made of cheap materials.
However, at PDG, we offer custom-made mouthguards for both adults and children to fit perfectly with your bite pattern and allow you to rest without wearing down your teeth.
We use the highest quality materials that will help relax your jaw muscles and relieve other symptoms of grinding. Fabricating a mouthguard only requires a single visit, so call us and make an appointment today.
